bringing history to life


Saddleworth Church 

Saddleworth lies to the west of the principal Pennine watershed.  Historically, a Township in the Agbrigg Wapentake of the West Riding of Yorkshire; Saddleworth was, however, a Chapelry within the parish of Rochdale until 1869 when it achieved parish status.  Although still part of the historic County of Yorkshire, Saddleworth is now part of the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham.
